In order to start playing video poker, you need to click on the "coin" icon to pick the value of the credits you are going to play with. When you click on the “View Payouts" button, you will be able to see the payout scale for video poker.
You are allowed to bet between one to five credits per hand. In betting, there are three choices:
- Select the number of hands you wish to play by clicking on the arrows next to the “No. of Hands Bet” label.
- For every credit you you wish to bet per hand, click on the arrows next to the “Bet per Hand” label.
- If you want to bet five credits per hand on all hands, click on the "bet max" button one time. When you click on the "bet max" button, you are placing the maximum bet and automatically starting the first deal, so you don't need to click on the "deal" button.
Push the "Deal" button to get your cards after you have placed your bet.
Once you click on the "deal" button, you will see five face-up cards on your screen. Now you need to decide which cards you would like to keep. If you would like to keep a card, click on it. If you change your mind, click on the card again and the word “Held” will be removed from the card. You will see the word "Held" on the cards you keep. This means that it will not be replaced when you pick new cards.
You should hit the "deal" button when you have selected the cards you'd like to hold. This will replace the cards that do not have the word "held" on them and you will then have your final hand. Your acquired credits are deposited directly into your account when you win.
